Critic Confuses Function of League of Women Voters

So read the byline of the December 30, 1992 Star-Bulletin Letter to the Editor written by President Evelyn Bender.

Bender took the opportunity afforded by an earlier Letter to the Editor writer to clarify League's impartial and non-partisan role. It seems that this need to clarify League's "modus operandi" is a nationwide concern. LWV of Connecticut President Kay Maxwell remarked in that League's November/December 1992 Voter, "I cannot remember a time when the League performed so many valuable services for citizens, while at the same time being the target of so many attacks on its nonpartisanship."

Maxwell referred in her column to a letter LWVUS President Becky Cain had written to the editor of the Wall Street Journal on the same subject. All three writers concur that members will continue to operate in the same way as we have since League's founding in 1920. They all no doubt realize that clarification of policies and process will need to continue.
